I have always held a strong belief that pregnancy and birth are normal life events. Working with women and their families has confirmed for me that the childbearing journey is a spiritual, physical and emotional experience.
I have been providing families in the Houston area with professional labor/birth doula services for over a decade. In 2008, I began working as a midwifery assistant, and in 2015 began my training to become a midwife.
As a midwife, Melissa believes that women should be able to receive evidence based care in any setting, receive the information that they need to make informed choices and feel comfortable asking questions.
As soon as Jaymee answered her phone, I knew IMMEDIATELY that I was going to put all my fears away and do a home birth. She was so soft spoken, patient, informative, knowledgeable it's ridiculous. I felt so empowered after I talked to her. It was the most satisfying and fulfilling moment in my life having such a blessing of a midwife by my side the entire way. The peace and serenity she brings to the birthing experience is one ALL moms should witness. Please, take my advice...call Jaymee, set up a consultation visit, and bring another beautiful life into this world. You won't regret it!
Melissa is professional, honest, reliable, thorough, funny, and kind. It is with the highest praise and respect that I recommend Melissa to any pregnant mama considering having baby in a more natural birthing environment.
We interviewed several midwives in the area before choosing Jaymee and she was very attentive throughout my pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She is big on teaching and I learned more about myself and baby during this pregnancy than I did the first time around through my Dr. For future pregnancies, Lord willing, she will be our midwife and close friend for life.
